Good thing numero uno...
I woke my sleepy butt up at 4:30 AM this morning and did a Jillian Body Revolution DVD. I did it! Of course, I DID plan ahead to make getting out of bed a little "easier." ;)
- Set the alarm sound to "Trill" -- quite possibly the MOST annoying tone ever AND the most terrifying when you are in a deep sleep. That sucker goes off and I practically leap out of bed.
- Snooze is turned OFF, my friends!
- I sort of gave myself a "motivational" message to go along with my wake up call. Yes, I typed to get my fat ass out of bed. Self deprecating humor is even funny at 4:30 AM. I just think it is funny that my alarm can call me names. ;)
Good thing numéro deux...
I ate a brownie and a taste of brownie batter. Ok, you may be wondering..."Uh does this chick know how healthy eating works? Should we tell her that brownies are not in the good healthy guidelines?"
You see, I make kick ass, from scratch fudge brownies. Tomorrow is my husband's birthday and he love these brownies. Therefore, because I am the best wife ever -- naturally --, I made him a pan of birthday brownies. Now, remember that I have had a really bad day and I had a bowl of umm nummy brownie batter right in front of me. Before, I would have eaten it by the spoonful to make me feel better. Today, I took a small taste, dumped that batter in the pan, shoved it in the oven, and washed that bowl out before I had a chance to stoop low enough to lick it.
I also ate a small brownie because I had mucho points left at the end of this crappy day. So, I finished my day with a delicious, warm brownie. I had the points. I counted it. Done. This is about lifestyle change. It is about moderation and self-control. It is about having one small brownie and not the whole pan, or one small taste batter and not shoveling it in. I do not want to live in a world where I can never eat another brownie! Craziness!
Well, I am heading out now. Time to go to bed, so that damn trill so Jillian can kick my butt tomorrow morning!
